, heather mcghee, richard wolffe, from "the washington post" msnbc contributor jonathan capehart. secretary of state hillary clinton is on the ground in the middle east. yesterday, president obama released clinton from their joint asia trip and sent her to jerusalem for an urgent meeting with ben ja man netanyahu. this morning clinton flew from jerusalem to the west bank to meet with mahmoud abbas, president of the palestinian authority, before returning to jerusalem with additional talks with netanyahu. secretary clinton is in cairo where she met with president mohamed morsi of egypt who's mediating the discussions. as secretary clinton carries the official white house message there is new attention being paid to the president's strategic options in the region. "the washington post" writes president obama's decision to send his top diplomat on an emergency middle east peace making mission tuesday marked an administration shift to a more active vist role in the region's affairs and offered clues to how he may use the political elbow room afforded by a second term. beyond a cease-fire agreem

[applause] >> good morning, everyone. thank you all for coming. like mr. morial, i am not used to doing the good morning and waiting for the response back. i am jonathan capehart, opinion writer at the washington post. mark, janet and chanel have set the stage for discussion. you have heard from mark. next to market is joel packer, a noted authority on federal education policy. to his left is michael fauntroy, a professor of privilege -- public policy at george mason university. we have just heard from janet murguia from the national council of la raza. with that, mr. packer, the microphone is yours. >> thank you for having me on the panel. i appreciated and i am unearned to be with my colleagues here. a couple of things about the reagan group. -- raven group. it is a public relations firm. the majority of our clients are progressive, non-profit organizations. our firm is committed to enhancing the ideals of the broad range of the progress of community. personally, i d

employ cal story will make headlines in the next 24 hours. jonathan capehart joins us. hey, jonathan, what are we looking at tomorrow? a lot of big doings in washington. >> well, the president elect of mexico enrique peno is coming to visit president obama at the white house. he gets inaugurated and vice president biden is going down to be part of that. i think that's what we're going to be talking about tomorrow. >> the fact that president obama said one of his big priorities in the second term was immigration. so clearly the president of mexico is going to want to see what he's willing to deliver. >> right. exactly. this is something that the current president of mexico, calderon, has been pushing for a long time as well. >> thanks so much, jonathan capehart. that does it for this edition of "andrea mitchell reports." next up is my colleague tamron hall. >> the senate returns to work at the top of the hour as debate over the fiscal cliff kicks into shall we say high gear. are republicans ready to ditch their decades-old plunge not to hike taxes? we'll all talk with peter de-faiz ow
to the end game. it's neck and neck in pennsylvania. it's a state you know very well. so jonathan capehart was on the set earlier and he called pennsylvania fool's gold for mitt romney. what do you think? >> the last time a republican won pennsylvania was back in 1988 when george h.w. bush won the state. 1 million more registered democrats than republicans. pennsylvania is even in play, who would have thought six months ago that the polls would be neck and neck. the fact that mitt romney is within striking distance, that speaks more to the president's vulnerablilitie vulnerabilities. if bill clinton is in the state, if they are spending more resources in pennsylvania, it tells me that the obama campaign has a lot to be worried about. >> what do you think jimmy? do you agree that the obama campaign should be worried right now? >> the obama camp should probably will not be worried. the exact same things were being said about four years ago. especially during the primaries. i just don't see -- listen. pennsylvania is a world of three different -- it's a state with three different countries in
, for this president. let's get to our panel. in washington msnbc contributor jonathan capehart, democratic strategist julian epstein, and in atlanta msnbc contributor goldie taylor. our tremendous trio. jonathan, fair to say this is not exactly what president obama expected to be dealing with the week after his triumphant election? >> no, not at all. in fact, after election day the president, speaker boehner, senate ma minority leader mitch mcconnell all talking about the facecle life, what they were going to do, not going to do, what they wanted to negotiate, not negotiate, but on friday, as news exploded out from the cia thanks to our own andrea mitchell that the president accepted the resignation of the cia director, general david petraeus, all of that -- you have to add that plus all the things you talked about, fiscal cliff, to what the president has to deal with. as you said, no honeymoon, indeed. >> and added to what jonathan just said, julian, there are some concerns over this that this is just the tip of the iceberg. i want to play you something senator feinstein said to andrea mitchell this
gail collins and jonathan capehart. up next, the top stories in the "politico playbook." first, the host of "way too early with bill karins," bill karins with a look at the forecast. hey, bill. >> yeah, one day, willie, one day. it was fun. you left a good show in your wake. good morning, everyone. down here at the plaza, the lights went on last night. the world-famous christmas tree is up and christmas is slowly approaching. yesterday it was very cold in the northeast. that was one of the bigger weather stories. looks like it's still chilly, but the wind not as bad as it was yesterday morning. windchills still in the 20s in most spots. i don't think we have to worry about icy roads. this afternoon just like yesterday with temperatures heading up into the 40s. looks even warmer friday into saturday. so the good news for the east coast, i think your warm-up has begun. anyone traveling to the west coast, this is where all the weather stories are going to be over the next three days. heavy rain, coastal areas of california, oregon, towards washington state. we really could get nai
jonathan capehart of the "washington post." it is a triumphant moment for everyone, even though no one has actually within won yet be. you can feel the excitement in the air, kurt. we play a little bit of sound from the candidates in the last 24 hours. everybody is making their final pitches. however, given the week that we have just had, it seems like mitt romney has more of an uphill climb that perhaps he even thought he would at this point in the race. i will call to your attention a tweet from rupert murdoch who tweets now christie, while thanking o., must redeclare for romney or take blame for next four dire years. >> which to me is the kind of hysteria on that side that oh my god, i mean i get the interim republican problem with chris christie appearing like a rational person with the president. but really, to suggest that that -- that his recommitment to romney will have any serious affect to make up the space that they're apparently behind says to me they're deeply concerned. >> we've talked about how this whole thing is balancing on a knife's edge, right, eric? that the polls are
by msnbc executive editor richard wolffe and jonathan capehart. the gop keeps saying there are more questions but they don't appear to be any more answers that susan rice can give. if she keeps going at this rate she's going to get to all 45 gop senators, republican senators, by christmas. >> right. the reason she can't give more answers -- she can always talk about this thing, but the subject matter is really limited here. and either the republican senators who are finding it hard to follow or maybe the viewers of another cable news channel who have lost all track of what this story is about, the questions are about her performance on a group of sunday talk shows. the real story should be, and was supposed to be, about the security of foreign service officials in dangerous countries. she doesn't get to speak about that. she's not responsible for the security of those officials. the framework they're trying to surround her and hunt her down on really comes down to her performance on a sunday talk show. there's only so many questions you can frame about that. they've run to the end o
'm jonathan capehart. steve car knack k-- >> i wish they sold tickets to this one. >> every league has its basement dwellers. if politics is basketball, who would be the washington wizards? >> as you can tell we didn't win the powerball last night unfortunately. but today's show is a slam dunk. let's start the shot clock. >>> for all of you who loved my thursday political baseball metaphors during the presidential election, i've got some great news for you. with the month long debate now set for all of december on the so-called fiscal cliff, and with congress and the president probably waiting till the last minute, we now have basketball thursdays here on "the cycle." score! a tip of the jersey to hall of fame coach steve smith of north carolina. with all the talk and posturing going on, mr. director, do you have our fancy animation on this? he says it's not ready yet. >> why not? >> we'll go back to our preseason graphic. we're calling this, depending on how we feel that day, either the fiscal cliff. boo. the fiscal slope. hmm. the fiscal fiesta, my personal favorite. or the fiscal follie
package. >> jonathan capehart, we were saying throughout the entire campaign, this was a seinfeld campaign. but a campaign about nothing. except -- and we always have the caveat -- mitt romney said he was going to cut taxes even if he couldn't pay for him, and the president said he was going to raise taxes on the rich. the president could not have been more clear about that. >> right. right. that was not an unknown. and people went into the voting booth, voted for the president, and in exit polls, they said overwhelmingly that they favored what the president was going -- or now is going to try to do. you know, to add on to something that john heilemann said in terms of speaker boehner now trying to exert more control over his raucous caucus there in the house, the other thing that's going to happen is that the president is basically going to refuse to be held hostage in washington trying to negotiate a deal behind closed doors. he's going to leave washington and take the case to the people to get the american people behind him, get support and have them lend their -- send their voices to
on this television network. alex wagner host of "now" and contributor jonathan capehart. alex, stop laughing. there's something serious we have to discuss. that is paul ryan. this is what he was caught saying on a conference call with some evangelicals sunday. the president's path compromises those values, those judeo-christian, western civilization values that made us such a great and exceptional nation in the first place. why doesn't mr. ryan call him an islamic terrorist? >> he may as well. it's difficult to be both pathetic and outrageous at the same time, but mr. ryan has beautifully done that. this is a continuation of the narrative we have discussed which is trying to paint the president aed a kenyan revolutionary outside the american mainstream. there are racial dog whistles here. religious dog whistles here. the fact this is paul ryan's closing argument in the final hours of this election is a sign of not only the desperation but the shameless transparency of this campaign. >> last week we learned of a romney/ryan robocall to voters in virginia that also attacked the president on religious
. joining me in new yoris a colum guardian," jonathan capehart and an msnbc contributor, writer for "the washington post." hello. >> if i can start with you, which was worse for mitt romney, his inept performance as a candidate or that republicans have yet to discover black ople, hispanics, women, anyone under the age of 30? which is worse? >> well, i tnk they're both worse. it's worse for mitt romney because, you know, couldn't quite figure out what he wanted to do with his campaign. we talked many, many times on your show about where are his ideas, where are his plans, where are his tax returns? and he got shellacked at the polls. now the sadness and despair and trauma moves to the party as a whole, because as you've said, the republican party has to deal with the fact that it is now confronted by a nation that doesn't look like its party. the country is younger, it's blacker and browner. and it doesn't look like the republican party. if the republican party want to go -- wants to, you know, remain a regional party, then it can just keep doing what it's doing. if it wants to be a gover

headed right off the cliff. joining me now is krystal ball, jonathan capehart, writer for "the washington post" and an msnbc contributor. thanks for coming on the show. >> thanks for having us. >> gop consultant mike murphy tweeted something interesting today. he said, quote, one sad possibility, mitt was our hubert h. humphrey, 1968 equivalent. next up? our mcgovern of 1972. yes, it could get even worse before it gets better. the point murphy is making is that democrats ignored their loss in the election in 1968. instead of nominating a more modern figure in '72 they went further to the left and lost probably the biggest loss of that time. i think the governor only won one state. do you think that's going to happen to the republicans? >> i certainly think it's possible and somewhat of an argument can be made that they already sort of went down that path. the argument after john mccain in 2008 was he wasn't conservative enough. a lot of people are still saying he wasn't a real conservative. he really didn't believe in the values. there's also this notion that, you know, the problem isn't
